Happy Sunday Everyone!
Darlene here today! With so much tragedy and sickness in the world today,
I think we all know someone who is going through a difficult time
and could use a card of encouragement to not give up HOPE!
That was my thought behind today's card.
I know it's only July but I'm thinking ahead and wanted to have a few cards ready for the Fall season. I have one particular Fall Craft Show that I know the ladies will love this Fall colored creation. The fact that is '1 stamp mailable' will be a PLUS for them.
Here's a few quick tips on it's creation . . .
I first die cut the beautiful Maple Vine Frame (Tutti-139) from white card stock.
Next I took another piece of white card stock and sponged various fall colors of ink around the outer edge. I wasn't too concerned about the middle since it pops out of the die.
(As you can see I wasn't too concerned about getting those ROUND sponge dauber circles either ... as a matter of fact, that was quite okay because it gave me some 'highs & lows' on the finished cut.)
I off set the inked die cut panel over top of the white die cut panel
then adhered it to my forest green card base.
Remember I said the center pops out ... well, we wouldn't want to waste that piece since it was perfect to use for cutting out the HOPE die which is actually a part of the Snowglobe Expressions (Tutti-143) set.
A white gelly roll pen was used to free hand some faux stitching around the word
as well as the edge of the card base.
Viola ... almost done!
I wanted to leave room for a message on the inside but then remembered there was another fabulous fall die in this latest release that I thought would work nicely as an accent for the inside of my card.
That die is the Pinecone Branch (Tutti-148) ...
